Merlin Stone, from The Politics of Women's Spirituality, ed. by Charlene Spretnak (Anchor/Doubleday) 1982,., pg 551:

"Entering into a discussion about whether or not ancient Goddess worship existed, as the author of 'Myths and Matriarchies' (I refer to it as M&M) suggests, is much like inviting us into a discussion of whether or not World War II actually occurred. As long as the author of M&M chooses to blind herself to the evidence of seven thousand years of artifacts and the three thousand years of historical (i.e., written) material, as discovered, deciphered, and described by archeologists and historians (those listed in the ten pages of bibliography of When God Was a Woman) -- how can her statements even be considered seriously?"
